On September 4th 1974, Johnny Dewe Matthews took several pictures of Queen at Primrose Hill, London. He explains:"These were the 1st ever photos taken of the group in my studio in 1973. They were never used and have never been seen until now [fall 2009]. At the time when I was asked by their then agent I had never heard of them, But with Freddie it was immediately apparent that I was in the presence of a charismatic visionary who was totally focused. He set the dress sense for the whole band and I remember that he smelt of something delicious. They were very confused by my casual approach to taking photos. I had no assistants and no lights and only listened to blues music. But Freddie warmed up when I told him that I had taken many photos of Derek Jarman and Andrew Logans "Alternative Miss World" I also told him about photographing Andy Warhol at his Mao show in Paris with a Brownie Box camera. He looked at me as if he was genuinely impressed!"
